FPUTWS(3) Linux Programmer s Manual FPUTWS(3)

NAME fputws - write a wide character string to a FILE stream

SYNOPSIS #include <wchar.h>

int fputws(const wchar_t *ws, FILE *stream);

DESCRIPTION The fputws() function is the wide-character equivalent of the fputs() function. It writes the wide character string starting at ws, up to but not including the terminating L character, to stream.

For a non-locking counterpart, see unlocked_stdio(3).

RETURN VALUE The fputws() function returns a nonnegative integer if the operation was successful, or -1 to indicate an error.

CONFORMING TO C99, POSIX.1-2001.

NOTES The behaviour of fputws() depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the cur- rent locale.

In the absence of additional information passed to the fopen() call, it is reasonable to expect that fputws() will actually write the multibyte string corresponding to the wide character string ws.
